What is a stream in C

0 votes
I've been hearing a lot about streams, notably file streams. So, what exactly are they?

Is it anything that has a memory location?

Is it anything that carries information?

Is it simply a link between a file and an object?

In C++, what is a virtual base class?

When employing multiple inheritance, virtual base classes are used to prevent several "instances" of a particular class from appearing in an inheritance hierarchy. Consider the following example: class A { public: void Foo() {} ...READ MORE

What is the best way to use a HashMap in C++?

The ordered and unordered map containers (std::map and std::unordered map) are included in the standard library.  The items in an ordered map are sorted by key, and insert and access are in O (log n).  For ordered maps, the standard library often use red black trees.  However, this is only an implementation detail.  Insert and access are in O in an unordered map (1).  It is simply another term for a hashtable. An illustration using (ordered) std::map: #include <map> #include <iostream> #include <cassert> int main(int argc, char ...READ MORE

What is a lambda expression in C++11?

In C++11, what is a lambda expression? A: It's the object of an autogenerated class with overloading operator() const under the hood.  Closure is a type of object that is produced by the compiler.  This 'closure' idea is similar to C++11's bind notion.  Lambdas, on the other hand, usually produce better code.  Full inlining is also possible with calls through closures. Q: When do you think I'd utilise one? A: Define "simple and tiny logic" and request that the compiler generate the code from the preceding question.  You tell the compiler the expressions you wish to be inside the operator ().  The compiler will produce everything else for you. Q: What kind of problem do they tackle that couldn't be solved before they were introduced? A: It's some form of syntactic sugar, like using operators instead of functions for custom add, subtract, and other operations... However, wrapping 1-3 lines of genuine logic to some classes, and so on, saves additional lines of needless code!  Some engineers believe that if the number of lines is reduced, there is a lower likelihood of mistakes (which I agree with). Example of usage auto x = [=](int arg1){printf("%i", ...READ MORE
